LEGO Stephen

A project by Iain Heath

English theoretical physicist, cosmologist and author, Stephen Hawking is one of the most authoritative and well-known theoretical physicists in the world, known above all for his studies on black holes, quantum cosmology and the origin of the universe.

In 1963, he was diagnosed with an early-onset slow-progressing form of motor neurone disease — also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease — that gradually paralysed him over the decades. He died on 14 March 2018 at the age of 76, after living with the disease for more than 50 years.

Artist Iain Heath wanted to pay a tribute to Stephen by creating a LEGO model in 2007 and, recently, sharing its instructions so folks can make their own.
